Glasgow Green Weir

Here are some pictures of the weir at Glasgow Green taken one cold Sunday afternoon in November. The presentation will play through, or you can select individual images.

 

At this stage of the tide it would be possible for a small craft, like an inflatable, to make it over the weir from the non-tidal into the tidal section of the river, particularly since, on the Greendyke Street side, there are wooden steps.

 

However, while such a manoeuvre is fine to contemplate, I wouldn’t try it unless under special circumstances. On a nice day like this The Clyde looks benign. But really, in common with most large rivers, it’s dangerous and should always be treated with respect. The main hazards are: sub-surface weeds, strong currents and pathogenic microorganisms.

 

So probably best admire The Clyde from its banks.
